from texas. perhaps the same-sex marriage case from california and others you are focused on that i'm not. any thoughts on what next term is looking like? >> the case we know is the affirmative action case out of texas. it might bring us full circle. we have a court with five members who are very skeptical of race conscious government practice. while that case has various vehicle problems and comes from a place with a very id owe sin cattic admissions process, that case fisher against texas is a big deal. i would think they will take the case. the federal court struck down a statute. they love to give him the opportunity to get back. i think for same-sex marriage cases, if they had to choose, the case only asks whether they have to track benefits in states where people are already lawfully married. it's not shoving marriage down the throats of anybody but making the federal law congruent to state law in an area where they traditionally governed. it's a simpler question than the prop 8 one. >> i sure agree with that. on the affirmative action thing, the thing to watch is whether it's
from texas is recognized for 15 minutes. >> mr. speaker, i yield myself such time as i may consume. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman is recognized. mr. smith: i support this legislation to repeal the new health care law which will shrink jobs, increase taxes and limit americans' freedoms. although the supreme court has delivered its decision on obamacare, it is the people whose verdict counts the most. the american people have consistently rejected this costly and ineffective government takeover of the health care sector. they realize the law fail ours families, drives up the cost of health care, undermines the doctor-patient relationship, tramples on the religious liberty of millions of americans, and vastly expands the role of the federal government. after the supreme court decision, we now know that obamacare is a massive tax hike on the middle class. while the supreme court may have declared the law constitutional, that does not mean it is good policy for the american people. obamacare forces millions of americans to abandon their current health care plans and give up the

that republican governors ought to be looking at that poll and moving on, too. some southern governors like texas' rick perry wants to vote no on obama-care in his own way. but those governors their version is to secede from healthcare, and they're just dancing for the tea party. i know that. here's my prediction. all those governors, they will all opt in eventually. why? opting out is going to end their political careers. let's use rick perry as an example since he's threaten to go mess with texas. under obama-care most of texas' 6 million uninsured are going to get access to healthcare and federal aid. but that rational argument does not appeal to tea partyers like perry, turning down federal money is a badge of honor for them. but texans are still going to pay for healthcare reform. turning down the medicaid expansion means rejecting $76.3 billion in texas alone for five years. so texans are still going to pay billions in federal medicare taxes, but those texans are not going to get any of the benefits. does rick perry really want to campaign on that? does he want to tell texans, yeah you're g

. it makes sense. but then, you have a guy like republican texas governor rick perry come along and say something like this: >> texas wasn't going to be a part of it expanding socializing of our medicine. so we are not going to participate in exchanges. we are not going to expand medicaid. we are just for the going to be a part of, again socializing health care in the state of texas. >> so in addition to losing out on billions in money to cover their uninsured, texas is going to lose $17,000,000,000 in special federal funds that would support hospitals who care for the uninsured. and their hospitals are going to get slammed. nearly 1 in 4 texans are uninsured, the most in the nation. now, 6 republican governors have decided not to take the health care money, not to opt in including texas and florida, two of the biggest states in the nation. in total, nearly 4 million people from those 6 states will lose health care coverage by their failure to opt in. joying me to discuss the predictament for hospitals in particular is bruce siegel, the ceo of the nati
